Representing a new, daring direction for Daalarna Couture, the 2014 bridal collection is, according to designer Anita Benes, a search for the harmony of contrast. Soft tulles and silk muslins are paired with macramé laces, unfinished edges and rough surfaces, dark-bright contrasts and shiny-matte surfaces come into play, and long-sleeved dresses are offset by transparent surfaces.

“This year I was inspired by gentle erotic – what dominates the catwalks nowadays – and it was a real challenge, however an exciting one, to implement it into wedding dresses,” says Benes. “The most important question for me when I design wedding dresses is where is the limit, and what divides tradition and trend.”
